This is the home of “JDM Pedals” Boutique Guitar Effect Pedals.
JDM Pedals are Boutique Guitar Effects Pedals Handmade in Berlin, Germany. Some are based on classic circuits with mods and design additions, others are our own creation. We build pedals for working musicians – no need to have expensive gear, but we recommend a solidly built guitar and a tube amplifier for best results. Many of our pedals simply sound their best interacting with a tube amp (In particular the “Fuzz 292”, “Tonemaster”, “Humdinger”, and Elektrika”).
The models we offer are quite full featured, but if you’d like a custom pedal, we can do that, too. Just drop us a line, and we’ll try to accommodate requests. We’re also post tips & tricks for D.I.Y. guitar effects. Please write if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see.
About JDM Pedals
We use selected vintage transistors, both Germanium and Silicon, paired with modern, high-tolerance capacitors and resistors. Our pedals feature hand-finished enclosures, silk screened graphics, and hand wired circuit boards. All potentiometers are wired NOT connected to the circuit board!
The “mojo” of vintage capacitors and resistors isn’t (in our opinion) worth the added noise and potential to fail, some transistors are, however, simply awesome. We use die-cast aluminum enclosures, Alpha Potentiometers, Lumberg DC jacks, Rean/Neutrik audio jacks, Squires Wires, etc. for dependable performance.
What People Are Saying About JDM Pedals
We sell our pedals here on joedocmusic.com, but also on Ebay.com and Reverb.com. See our feedback piling up on Ebay here, and on Reverb here. We’ve also excerpted customer comments and select feedback on each pedal on the individual descriptions so you can get an idea of what’s in store. At this point in time, JDM Pedals is still a “best kept secret” in boutique pedals, keeping our prices low by going word of mouth, and the quality high through small production .
